Seminar with keynote speeches by:

Liz Wootton of Human Nature Development – “Superhuman vs Simply Human: what it really takes to build a sustainable business” – I want to explore some of the stereotype behaviours ‘they’ say you need to build a successful business (working really long hours, sacrificing your life etc) and instead look at things from the point of view of building something sustainable in the long term, which needs skills, not simply Olympic endurance!
-more speakers to be announced-

A discussion on local business & industry’s current statistics on gender diversity. Bring your business cards!
